JayM,

Good catch
ddm-mx is NOT installed in /usr/local/bin. Hence the error, I installed it from synaptic. Later, I'll try the nvidia driver install again.

Is there any ideas on what I can check to get the sound working?

Probably the utility in the control centre missed when configuring the sound file. Perhaps check ~/.asoundrc vs what aplay shows and try the different options manually.

Thanks antiX-Dave,

Perhaps check ~/.asoundrc vs what aplay shows and try the different options manually.
Can you give some hints where to look for .asoundrc , and how to see what aplay shows?
And then what do I look for?

To see . (dot) files use ls -a in your home directory, or show all files in a GUI file manager.

OK, I show all the hidden files in my home directory. I see a .alsaequal.bin and lots of other .hidden files, but there is no .asoundrc.

Could this be a problem? The problem?
I didn't have sound on the live session either, but I thought, what the heck, install and try to fix it.

What about kernel versions, might a newer kernel work differently, though this is 4.9.167 !

aplay -l lists the nvidia as the sound card 0, and the Generic as card 1, of course this hardware all works wonderfully , with sound in MX 18 and antiX18. Havent had a problem in years with getting sound.

I think the .asoundrc file is in /etc IIRC

Normally, I think, you create a .asoundrc file in your home directory if you want to override system defaults.

I've used it to alter which sound card is to be the default on one of my laptops when, I think it was, using alsamixer wouldn't save my choice.
This is what I used, (taken from my notes).

Code: Select all

pcm.!default {
type hw
card 0
}
ctl.!default {
type hw
card 0
}

Re: antiX-19-b1-full 64 -still no sound

OK, some progress. Thanks D_O. I looked in /etc, and found only a file with a different name, similar.

So I edited it as root, uncommenting the defaults (which had sound card 0, the nvidia) and changing the three lines with card 0 to card 1.
Saved and rebooted.

Now the mixer comes up correctly as the generic Realtek, and no error is thrown when I I play an mp3 in XMMS.

But, alas, no sound comes out !

I am back in MX-18 (sound working) on the same machine.

I didn't' write the name of the file I edited /etc/.asoundrc maybe, I' check tonight back in the beta1.

d_o and mxer,

I am back booted to antiX 19b1.

In the /etc directory, even when showing hidden files, there is no asoundrc.

But there is the asound.conf. I edited this as root changing this part:

Code: Select all

# ***** Defaults *******************************************************

# Audio card/chip and device to use and control
# In most cases these settings should remain commented (#)
# When commented, card and device 0 are usually automatically selected
# When uncommented, the item corresponding to the number is selected
defaults.pcm.card 1
defaults.pcm.device 1
defaults.ctl.card 1
I uncommented those last three lines, and changed the zeros to ones, saved and rebooted.
When playing a .mp3 with XMMX no longer throws the error that the sound card is not configured.

And the Test Sound in the control panel no longer blinks and goes away. It seems to do the test, but no sound comes out.
And sound works perfectly when I boot into MX on the same machine.


Should I post this on the antiX forum?
Should I re-install? ( I did interrupt the install and resume due to my mbr confusion.)
Try a different kernel?

What else to check?
